    He made my retirement, can't put him in there. Best bonuses I ever made were during those 8 years.

    I'm not certain yet. I'll have to look back at some similar polls to see what it might look like. You should also include the disclaimer that no animals were harmed in the creation of the poll. Also, many butts will be hurt during the polling process. There will be a butt hurt tent set up for treatment in the Basement.

    Generally speaking - he's no better and no worse than any previous president over the last few decades.
    That's not a compliment or praise no matter how it's sliced.

    The ACA will be the final nail in the coffin for pushing him off the fence one way or the other.
    It's too early to tell how that's going to pan out, but the road has sure looked ominous so far.

    (I did not vote for Obama in either election)

    Too soon to tell, to be honest, but I chose average. Obama is neither so far the best nor likely to be the worst. He is a good speaker, is well educated and intelligent, but he does not seem to be able to control even his own party in congress or manage to select very good help to run the executive functions of the federal govt. I would grade him a D so far.

    I doubt that he will ever be rated the best, but he's certainly not the worst.
    Those polls and studies mean nothing as long as he is in the white house. Hell, they won't mean anything for at least a decade after to be honest. Things like Obamacare and Iran Deal will determine where he ranks in the scheme of things.

    Correct, but this thread is here now.

    I do agree that we won't have a good read on Obama or G.W. Bush for quite a few years.

    I don't know about this string ending proper and dignified, but I would say this current president is about average for the presidents I have known and experienced since Eisenhower. You know you're getting old when one can remember 11 presidents and was born under the 12th. I would rank Bush the second and Obama in 7th and 8th place out of the 11 I experienced. They, both of them would only be ahead of Nixon, Ford and Carter. This is my opinion
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
